Cuts at the Daily News last Friday, according to LA Observed, were Oscar Garza and:
according to multiple newsroom sources… City Hall reporter Brandon Lowrey and Santa Clarita reporter Jerry Berrios.
LA Observed has part of Garza's farewell memo, which contains the news that:
The DN will soon stop delivering over the hill…

More cuts at NPR, with details in this New York Times piece.

Features Editor Brenda Tabor is no longer at Westways, I learned last Friday. Al Bonowitz, the other features editor, remains in place.

Got an email kicked back from Amy Wolf, who was Sunset Magazine's travel editor, which said:
I'm no longer working at Sunset. For travel-related matters please get in touch with [Features Editor] Christine Richard.

Another email kick-back was passed on to me by Susan Gordon, this one from Los Angeles Magazine (although we already reported Margot's departure):
Margot Dougherty is no longer with Los Angeles magazine. She can be reached via at margotdougherty.
